Cufflinks can add an elegant and stylish statement to a man’s attire as well as injecting a bit of personality. Our silvertone rope bezel coin cuff links include 1883 "First-Year-of-Issue" genuine U.S. Liberty Nickels encircled by antique rope settings that will make your cuffs a great conversation starter at your social event. The Liberty Nickel was minted from 1883 to 1912 and is composed of copper nickel. It is sometimes referred to as the V nickel due to the Roman numeral 5 on the obverse of the coin. The reverse features Lady Liberty designed by Charles Barber. The Liberty Nickel first appeared without the word cents but because of fraud it was added in a later minting in 1883. Con men were trying to pass it off as the 5 dollar gold piece by dipping the coin in a thin layer of gold. The word cents was added so the public would be able to distinguish the difference between the coins. These coin cuff links have bullet back closures making them very easy to put on. Comes with a Certificate of Authenticity.
